Washington D.C. [USA], Sept. 9 (ANI): Even while most of his fellow people are in favour of 2016 US Presidential candidate Donald Trump, Brad Pitt apparently "can't bring myself to think that Trump will be in charge".

The 52-year-old actor, while discussing the British exit from the European Union, opened up to the New York Times' T magazine about his feelings regarding Trump, reports E! Online.

"Man, I never thought [Brexit] would happen. Same way I can't bring myself to think that Trump will be in charge," the 'Fury' actor said, "In the simplest terms, what brings us together is good, and what separates us is bad."

"We have this great line in 'The Big Short,' 'When things are going wrong and we can't find the reason for it, we just start creating enemies'," he added.

On a related note, 'The Big Short' is last year's Oscar-winning film about the global financial crisis of 2008.

The 52-year-old actor goes on to explain how he can understand why people are attracted to the media mogul and his ideas for the future of the country.

"Coming from Oklahoma, southern Missouri, which leans more toward a Trump voice, I try to understand it," he explained,

"You gotta understand that it's also in our DNA. Most Americans don't have time to watch CNN and Fox and Al Jazeera. They're trying to make the rent, get the kids fed, they're tired when they get home and they want to forget about everything. And so suddenly when this voice comes in-and it doesn't have to be a voice of substance-saying he's fed up with all of this, that's the part that hooks into the DNA," added Pitt. (ANI)
